A New Canvas

Whether it’s her mom’s old boxes, a local restaurant’s empty rice bags, or boxes and bags from her night job, Sayo gives new life to old things. The perfect example of resourcefulness to create a new canvas, Sayo developed a line of clothing and accessories by taking discarded waste by transforming it into unique wearables. The result is your new favorite bag, salvaged from a lifetime of slow landfill decay.
